Fresh off Kasama’s web site we have some updated CAD drawings showing the progress of the SRIMOK 90 electric design. The first thing you notice in these latest drawings is the battery placement has changed. Originally both batteries where show up front one on top of another. Now one battery is up front and one underneath the electric motor.
Looks like Mr. Kasama has upgraded the tail bevel gears in the Kasama Srimok 90. Thicker and deeper teeth. Bulletproof now.
Kasama soon to be available at ReadyHeli.Com. Parts are already in stock.

I won…thanks RCHELIRESOURCE/READYHELI! Readyheli rocks beyond all…I just got my box of goodies from them and there must have been over a half dozen mints to go along with a beautiful Mikado FBL conversion kit.
You’ve heard about it, you’ve probably even asked about it. And if you were there last year, you said you were to coming back.

Some new, exclusive designs for your Kasama 90 and Vibe 50 from Canomod…
In typical Align fashion, release a helicopter, then later release another version with different colors. Well the latest heli to get this treatment is the Align T-Rex 250 “SE” edition. Instead of different anodize colors on the aluminum parts, Align is now offering silver finish.
For those of you who don’t like the inaccuracy of a typical mechanical pitch gauge, we found a nifty device that does measurements digitally. Read on to find out more.
Looks like Futaba is coming out with a WIRELESS trainer system for their FASST radios.
GForce has made a name for themselves by making many high quality, machined aluminum upgrades for most model helicopters. This time they decided to go for a new model, creating an all CNC, fully tunable head for the Hirobo SDX 50.
RC Mania Magazine of Hong Kong just did a very nice write up with detailed pictures on the long awaited OS 55 HZ engine. Read on to find more information and pictures.
We have just received notification from Curtis Youngblood Enterprises they have elected to discontinue the Solid G gyro. This is not due to any issue or defect in the Solid G but instead because the Mini-G popularity has shown to be much higher then expected. Originally CYE designed the Mini-G for 50 nitro size helis and smaller. However once they started testing the new gyro they discovered it works extremely well on any size machine including 90 size nitro and electric helis. For this reason, and the small footprint, the Mini-G once released became the most popular gyro from CYE.
It used to be if you wanted your pilot name on your canopy, or maybe some sponsor decals you would have to pay a custom canopy painter several hundred dollars. Well Canomod has recognized this is a common request among pilots for their canopies and are now offering their exclusive service. You now have the flexibility to change the color pallet and pattern as well as add your name and custom logos. The prices are very competitive compared to the custom canopy painters.
